TERRY BENNETTS is a Bush Ballad Singer/Songwriter/Guitarist from WA and this is a new single off his forthcoming CD due for release in 2020.

The ‘BALLAD OF THE COAL PIT PONIES’ was produced and recorded by Terry at his  ‘Red Dog Recording Studios’ in Perth. Terry was asked to write the song by Ashley Cook (A coal miner and Bush Balladeer from Queensland) while in Tamworth and Ashley is also a co-writer of the song.

The song is a story about the Coal Pit Ponies that were used to haul the coal from underground before machinery took over the mines with the last two horses, Wharrier and Mr. Ed being retired in 1990.

Terry continues to spend a lot of time on the road with his wife Virginia taking his music to the people of Australia.
